Kid Friendly Recipe: Corn Dog Muffins



Temperatures in Austin are already in the mid-90s so it’s hard to believe it’s not officially summer yet.  We’ve been fortunate enough to check our beach vacation off of our summer list but there’s still more we’d love to do. Our priority this summer is teaching Cakes how to swim so there’ll be lots more water in our future.  I definitely foresee trips to local lakes, visits to Sea World, and even slip and slides and sprinkler fun in the backyard just to get Cakes more comfortable being in the water.

But you can’t have all of that fun in the water without working up an appetite. Most of the time when I’m creating meals, developing kid friendly recipes that the entire family can enjoy together is at the top of my priority list. Obviously this doesn’t always happen as my husband and my tastes vary greatly and leans more towards the spicy spectrum.

With our family’s new found fondness for hot dog recipes, I tried coming up with something new this week to integrate hot dogs into a new recipe.  After making a recipe with chili, the natural follow up for me was cornbread.  Chili and cornbread pair so well, so why not follow up a chili dog recipe with one for corn dogs?!  And these perfectly portioned, kid friendly servings have been a new favorite from the time they popped out of the oven.

  18. This really does sound good. Hot dogs are a favorite around here.

  19. What a great idea!

  20. Very creative. Those look delicious!

  26. These look like something my kids would LOVE! Do you think I could use regular milk (C has a soy allergy).

    I make something similar to this – but it’s Corndog Casserole.

  27. WONDERFUL! Hebrew National makes the best dogs.

    I love that it is a complete recipe, and doesn’t just call for pre-made biscuits. Not that there is anything wrong with pre-made biscuits… they have their place. However, I really do love the idea of making the biscuits from scratch… and this doesn’t look that hard.
